Description Gerard Seibert 2019-11-14 22:47:09 UTC
I am trying to new a new install of FreeBSD 12.1 on a Dell XPS 8930 PC. I am using the "Boot Only" CD. I had to disable secure boot on the XPS in order for it to use the CD.

Now, once the CD starts up, the "login" screen appears. I wait for that to time out and then the screen starts to fill up with messages. Then, this message is repeated ad infinitum:

uhub_reattach_port: giving up port reset - device vanished

It never stops and makes continuing with the installation impossible. I have Googles for a solution, but without results.
